'What Mo transmits to the team is special'


Rumour has it that Mohamed Elneny is still pressing Manchester United's defenders.

Eagle-eyed viewers of Sunday's game at Old Trafford would've spotted our Egyptian midfielder sprinting 30 yards to close down Luke Shaw in the dying seconds of the game.

But Elneny's tireless work-rate and selfless attitude comes as no surprise to Mikel Arteta.

"What Mo transmits to the team is special," our manager said. "He has this energy as a person.

"He goes in the room and he creates that atmosphere. Today I said that we needed that energy and that positive feeling that he brings all the time. I think he was tremendous.

"Obviously I played with him so I know his qualities and who he is as a person, and what he brings to the squad. I like players that have zero ego, who play for the team, who want to contribute regardless of what it is, whether that's one minute or 96 minutes or just by being there and giving positive feedback all the time.

"He contributes to our culture and is a person who admired by everyone at the football club. And now I think his qualities he's showing as a footballer, I always believed he had them."
